Random Thoughts II

Ever notice how people say "dead body" rather than just body? If you've found a body in the duct work of an elementary school (as police in Phoenix did today) why do journalists say police found a dead body? It's pretty obvious it's a dead one otherwise they'd say they've found a person. Go figure.

Through googling I found a blog (loaded with comments) about how horribly against-God IVF (in vitro fertilization) is. Evidently quite a few Christians think if a woman can't get pregnant, God has other plans for her. Messing with "god's will" through IVF is wrong evidently, but none of them think open-heart surgery and diabetes medication is. Go figure.

Some journalists have nothing better to do than pick at nits about whether Barack Obama was correct in using flack jacket in a press release instead of Flak jacket or whatever the current correct AP style is. Yeah, one dictionary says it can be spelled both ways, but AP style probably has it one way. In any case, no one should expect a public figure to use AP style!

I love Grey's Anatomy and watch every episode. Last night Sleyed and I watched the season finale online since we had missed it while flying to NH for the big event. I thought it was the best of the finales we watched (Lost, 24, Desperate Housewives, Heroes) but still a bit disappointing. Do all of the women have to end up being pathetic, wimpy-dimpy basket cases?

I've found a couple of blogs about Newfies. Around here, we love newfs -- flying fur and slobber and all. Ayla likes ice cubes too. Orion has a friend named Wet for obvious reasons. Nanook is a Landseer who appears to be owned by a Norwegian who got him and his Newfy sib bibs that say "Drool if you're Norwegian" (also Spit Happens). Kodos posts videos of himself and is huge. Haley doesn't have her own blog but she is one seriously cute puppy!
